BMW Concept Active Tourer – Specifications and Features
As a plug-in hybrid, the Concept Active Tourer combines BMW’s eDrive with a 1.5-litre engine with BMW TwinPower Turbo Technology. BMW’s eDrive consists of an electric motor, a lithium-ion battery and the intelligent engine control unit. Together, a total power output of 140kW is produced, while maintaining low fuel consumption and emissions levels. The Concept Active Tourer achieves less than 2.5-litres/100km with a CO2 emissions rating of only 60g/km.
In terms of performance, the Concept Active Tourer accelerates to 100km/h in less than eight seconds and reaches a top speed of 200km/h. With a fully charged battery, the Concept Active Tourer has a range of 30 kilometres running on electric power alone. The lithium-ion battery is charged through any 220V household power socket.
The BMW Concept Active Tourer combines compact dimensions with sporty design offering generous space and comfort. The front-end features a front-tilted radiator grille with striking twin headlines with LED positioning lights stretching to the side panels. High Reflection Silver paintwork gives the Concept Active Tourer a refined appearance. The rear-end features large light clusters that run into the side panel and a large, wide opening tailgate offers easy access to the storage compartment.
On the inside, open-pore laminated wood provides a visual link to the upper and lower décor surfaces of the instrument panel. The door trim panels and seats are covered in soft full-grain leather. The interior is both spacious and luxurious with the cockpit orientated towards the driver providing easy access to the main controls.
